I was having thermostat problems so yesterday I fitted a new one.
Disconnected battery before I started messing around.
To get to stat I unplugged and removed MAF sensor and intake pipe.
Fitted new Thermostat, no problem, plugged in the temperature sensor, put intake and MAF back on, reconnected the battery.
As soon as I restarted the engine the cooling fan started up and wouldn't go off. It was not doing this before.
Any ideas? Is there some kind of a ECM reset I need to do or have I disturbed a wire somewhere?
It was all going so well ....

Points to a problem with the temperature sensor or its wiring.

If the ECU can't see the temperature sensor, it turns the fan on full time.

Sorted! Took the relays out from in front of battery - cleaned - replaced. No fan but also no engine start! (No fuel). Wiggled the wires a few times and eventually got it to run (fan off). It obviously needs an auto electrician - dodgy connection somewhere :(

The small relay bases are coloured.
Brown = Injection
Red = Fuel Pump
White = AC
Black = Low Speed Fan

High Speed Fan is one of the larger relays.
